I am a Literacy Coach for Willow Creek Elementary in Saginaw, Texas. I attended the University of South Carolina, where I received my B.A. in Elementary Education and my M.Ed. in Language and Literacy. I moved out to Texas four years ago, starting out teaching 4th grade at a charter school. The past two years I served as the Reading Specialist for that same school until I transferred to EMS-ISD this year. I am currently a doctoral student at Texas Woman's University in the Reading Department, where I am specifically focused on emergent literacy theory and writing development.
I hope this blog will service the teachers at my school as another way to continue to learn and grow together. I want to highlight all of the wonderful teaching at our campus as well as provide additional theory and knowledge to our learning.
